Plans are underway to sort out sprinter, Letsile Tebogo’s persistent stumble. The Under-20 record holder stumbled during the start of the men’s 100m race at the Diamond League race on Friday night in Paris.

Tebogo also stumbled also during the semi final of the 2022 Oregon World Championships where he finished on position seven clocking 10.17 seconds. Despite the stumble, Tebogo finished the race with a Season’s Best (SB) of 10.05 seconds.

Coach Kebonyemodisa ‘Dose’ Mosimanyane told Sport Monitor that first they should establish if it is a strength issue on his right leg. Regarding the race, Mosimanyane said it went well except the stumble he experienced after the starting blocks clearance. “A season’s best performance and top three in a Diamond League with that kind of line-up is welcome.

We are on the right track, we just need to continue working on correcting mistakes going to Budapest,” he said. Other local athletes Leungo Scotch, Collen Kebinatshipi, Anthony Pesela and Isaac Makwala were on duty in Switzerland on Saturday.


The athletes were competing in the Geneva International Meet. Scotch stopped the clock in 44.82 seconds setting a new meeting record (MR) and personal best (PB) to win the men’s 400m.

New kid on the block, Kebinatshipi finished second with a time of 44.98 seconds. Makwala scooped second position in another heat dropping 45.79 seconds, which was his season’s best. Pesela was right behind him to clock 46.11 seconds.
